MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 

At the Annual Session of the Mississippi Conference in the 
City of Vicksburg, on December 7, in the year 1888, the follow- 
ing resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the Con- 
ference: 

"Resolved, 1. That a college for males under the 
avispices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, ought to be established at some central and ac- 
cessible point in the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three 
preachers be appointed to confer with a like committee 
to be appointed by the North Mississippi Conference to 
formulate plans and to receive offers of donations of 
lands, buildings or money for that purpose, and re- 
port to the next session of this Conference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- 
ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the following com- 
mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent and Dr. Luther 
Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presid- 
ing. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action 
taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- 
script from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives the 
response made by that body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of 
boys and young men should be established in the State 
of Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South. 

"That a committee of three laymen and three min- 
isters be appointed to confer with a like committee 
already appointed by the Mississippi Conference." 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. 
J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. 
Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman and Mr. J. B Streater 

To the action of these Conferences we may trace the direct 
origin of the College. 

The joint commissions constituted by the action summar- 
ized above met in the City of Jackson in January, 1889. The 
Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the chair. In stating the 
purpose of the meeting he made a stirring appeal in behalf of 
the proposition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi 
for the education of young men. In response to this earnest 
appeal, Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, 
proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided the 
Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this 
amount for said purpose. This proposition was enthusiastical- 
ly approved, and after a plan of procedure was adopted. Bishop 
Charles B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign in the 
interest of the proposed endowment fund. 

Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most 
gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The report 
submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 
1889, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous neces- 
sitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, 
could not be continuously carried on, but even the par- 
tial canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of 
our territory, resulted in the most gratifying and en- 
couraging success. The interest awakened in the en- 
terprise has extended beyond the limits of our own 
Church, and is felt by every denomination of Christians, 
and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that 
no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthu- 
siasm in our State or evoked such liberal offerings to 
the Lord, The fact has been demonstrated that the 
Church is profoundly convinced that the College is an 
absolute necessity." 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 25 



The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the 
proposed institution that numerous towns in the State 
have entered into earnest competition to secure the 
location of the college within the limits of their re- 
spective borders, offering from $10,000 to $36,000, and 
from twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of 
the Mississippi Conference, was appointed a special agent to 
co-operate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to 
the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of rais- 
ing the sum designated in the original proposition progressed, 
and $25,000 had been collected, Major Millsaps in the year 1890 
paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1892, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was appoint- 
ed agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he report- 
ed that the full amount had been collected to meet the terms 
of Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was im- 
mediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee 
and the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return 
our most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for 
his second gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. 
For his princely liberality, and unfailing interest in 
the great enterprise so happily and successfully inau- 
gurated, the Church and State owe him a large debt 
of gratitude." 

The Conference having provided for a Board of Trustees, 
the joint commission dissolved in January, 1890. This Board 
to which was referred the matter of organizing the College, 
was composed of the following: 



26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President 

REV. W. C. BLACK, D.D. REV. S. M. THAMES 

REV. T. L. MELLEN REV. T. J. NEWELL 

REV. A. F. WATKINS REV. C. G. ANDREWS, D.D. 

REV. R. M. STANDIFER HON. G. D. SHANDS 

MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN 

COL. W. L. NUGENT MR. J. B. STREATER 

DR. LUTHER SEXTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS REV. J. J. WHEAT, D.D. 

After the Board organized under the charter, the question 
of locating the College was considered with great care. The 
Board met repeatedly to consider the offers made by different 
towns, and finally on May 20, 1891, while in session in Winona, 
Mississippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capi- 
tal of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 
for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps add- 
ed $15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were im- 
mediately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a com- 
paratively short time buildings were in process of erection. 

The College opened its doors for the reception of students 
in 1892 with Rev. W. B. Murrah as President, and three profes- 
sors in the College. A Preparatory School was opened at the 
same time with one Master. From time to time its facilities 
have been enlarged and additional departments created, until it 
now has, in addition to its President, twenty-two professors in 
fourteen departments. 

The Presidents of the College have been W. B. Murrah, 
D.D., LL.D., later Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), D. C. Hull, M.A., 
(1910-1912), A. F. Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923), and D. M. Key, 
Ph. D., LL.D., (1923 ). 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jack- 
son led to the establishment in 1896, of a Law School. Hon. 
Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, 
and for more than fourteen years a professor of law in that 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 



institution, took active control of the new school. In 1918 it 
■was discontinued. 

In 1911 the Academy was formally sei^arated from the Co! 
lege. It was made a distinct institution with the official title 
of the Millsaps Academy. In 1922 it was discontinued. 

The facilities of the College were enlarged in 1895-1896 by 
the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Science 
Hall. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, built an ob- 
servatory for the College, in memory of his father, Mr. Peter 
James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James, and furnished 
it with a fine telescope. Millsaps College can thus offer un- 
usual advantages in astronomy. In 1902, to supply the in- 
creasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facil- 
ities. Major Millsaps gave the College the property fo:*merly 
known as Jackson College. This enabled the College to fill 
the demands made on it at that time. In addition to this gift 
Major Millsaps gave fifty acres of land immediately adjoin- 
ing our campus. Ample provision is thus made for the future 
expansion of the College. 

In 1906 the General Education Board offered to donate 
from the funds provided by John D. Rockefeller for Higher 
Education, $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000 
should be collected from other sources, for the permanent en- 
dowment of the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North 
Mississippi Conference was made financial agent of the Col- 
lege to collect this sum. In 1910, $32,279.10 had been collected 
for this purpose. Mr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen f 
Jackson, gave an additional $5,000. Major Millsaps, with char- 
acteristic generosity, contributed the remaining $37,720.90. 
Thus the endowment of the College was increased by $100,000. 

In 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the College, property on 
Capitol Street, Jackson, valued at $150,000. This is the larg 
est single gift to the College. 

The dormitory of the Preparatory School was destroye'l 
by fire in 1913, but was promptly rebuilt and made more val 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



uable by alterations which also improved greatly the appear- 
ance of the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the 
main building in 1914. But within a few months the old struc 
ture had been replaced by a far more commodious and impos- 
ing^ administration building. 

At the decease of Major R. W. Millsaps in 1916, it was found 
that he had left for the endowment of the College life insur- 
ance to the amount of $88,000. This final benefaction fitting- 
ly closed the long list of his gifts to the College. 

During the Christian Education Campaign of 1921 Mr. W. 
S. F. Tatum, a generous layman of Hattiesburg, donated 
$100,000 to the College for the establishment of the Depar 
ment of Religious Education. The Board of Trustees accept- 
ed the gift, giving the department the name of the generous 
donor. Later, in 1923 Mr. Tatum, realizing the growing im- 
portance of this field in the church coUege, added $25,000 to the 
sum at first given by him. By these gifts he created the first 
separately endowed department in the college. The depart- 
ment was organized at the opening of the session of 1921-'22, 
with Professor C. A. Bowen in charge. Provision was made 
in the deed of gifts for the employment of an Associate Profes- 
sor, and Millsaps College now has two professors in this depart- 
ment. The work of this department has grown in scope and 
effectiveness until it is now recognized as doing a leading work 
in the Methodist Church in this field. It is to be hoped that 
others will see the opportunity for promoting instruction in 
particular subjects by endowing other departments. The 
Science Departments, the History Department, the Department 
of Education and the Carnegie-Millsaps Library are, because of 
their needs, promising fields for a fruitful investment in Chris- 
tian Education. 

In 1926 the number of women students had increased to 
such an extent that it became necessary to provide housing ac- 
commodations on the college campus, and the Sullivan House 
which had been removed in order to make room for the new Car- 
negie-Millsaps Library, was fitted up and equipped for this 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 



purpose. During the session of 1928-29, a second building, a 
new apartment house on West street was leased and furnished 
as a home for young women. It immediately became apparent, 
however, that this provision is inadequate and will have to be 
enlarged. Plans are now on foot by which it is expected that 
adequate provision will be made for all young women now in 
the College and for those who may enter the Junior or Senior 
Class. It will not be possible to admit young women not resi- 
dents of Jackson to the Freshman or Sophomore Class. 

Since the foundation of the old library had so given away 
as to make the building unsafe, the Carnegie Library Board 
agreed in 1923 to rebuild the Library on a new site, and to pro- 
vide a larger one more nearly adequate to the needs of the col- 
lege, which had grown greatly since the original Library was 
built. So a new Library costing $60,000.00 became available 
in 1925-1926. 

In 1926 and again in 1927 the Conferences took action ap- 
proving and endorsing the purpose of the college to make a 
special appeal for enlargement and improvement of the physi- 
cal equipment. In the spring of 1928 this appeal was begun 
and some $268,000 in subscriptions was secured. This amount 
included a number of gifts of considerable sums including $50,- 
000 from B. B. Jones who had previously given $20,000 to the 
endowment, $15,000 from W. M. Buie, whose previous gifts have 
amounted to $28,300; and $15,000 from the I. C. Enochs family. 
At the last Annual Conference, Rev. V. G. Clifford was appoint- 
ed as financial commissioner and will devote his time to the 
raising of funds for the completion of the buildings needed. As 
a result of the subscriptions already made, the Board has let 
contract for a magnificent science building which will cost 
when completed and equipped about $180,000. 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern 
States. An impartial committee of the Association made ex- 
haustive inquiry into the financial resources of the institution, 
its courses, the training of its instructors, and the character of 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



its work, and unanimously recommended it for membership. 
This inquiry extended over a year, and no conditions whatever 
were imposed for the election of the CJollege, since it had been 
of the first rank for some years. Its degrees are recognized 
by all institutions of learning as among the best in the land. 

The College is also a member of the Association of Ameri- 
can Colleges, and of the American Association of Collegiate 
Registrars. 

The following statement of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some 
idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guar- 
anty of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, including revenue pro- 
ducing property - $ 931,909.00 

Unproductive endowment (land) 100,000.00 

Value of Library 20,000.00 

Building and Grounds - 575,000.00 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biological 

apparatus _ 20,500.00 

Furniture and fixtures - _... 15,000.00 

Total $1,662,409.00 

One of the purposes which the College keeps constantly in 
view is indicated by the following section of the charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, 
be reduced to the lowest point consistent with the ef- 
ficient operation of said College, and every reasonable 
effort shall be made to bring collegiate education with- 
in the reach of the poorer classes of the State." 

With a productive endowment of $931,909.00, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $575,000.00, it rests on a foundation 
which assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 



religious domination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy. It 
numbers among its patrons representatives of all the Christian 
churches.

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W, Millsaps, 
whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institu- 
tion possible. The College is the property of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the concurrent 
action of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences. 
It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons 
members of all the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION. 

Jackson, the capital of the state, and the seat of the Col- 
lege, is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty pas- 
senger trains arrive and depart daily. The College is located 
in the northern part of the city on a commanding elevation, 
with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of one hun- 
dred or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to 
find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a city of 40,000 
inhabitants, with handsome churches and public buildings, and 
is noted for the refinement and intelligence of its people. Its 
literary, social and religious advantages are superior. 

THE JAMES OSERVATORY 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantages 
in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of 
Yazoo City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College 
in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, 
Mr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a 
fine telescope. The observatory building and equipment has 
been renovated, and is in excellent order. The class of 1916 
donated a fine photographic lens to the observatory, which adds 
materially to its equipment. 

CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY. 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew 
Carnegie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the 
trustees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major 



38 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Millsaps added to his many contributions by givinsr the full 
amount of the endowment. 

The foundations of this handsome building unfortunately 
gave way so that it became necessary to rebuild the structure, 
and the Carnegie Corporation has generously appropriated 
$50,000.00 for this purpose. The books are catalogued fully 
by the A. L. A. system and are in charge of Mrs. M. B. Clark, 
a trained and experienced librarian. 

From time to time additions have been made from the en- 
dowment funds and from the Library fees. 

In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has 
been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected li- 
braries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, John W. Burruss and 
Rev. W. G. Millsaps, the entire library of Colonel W. L. Nu- 
gent, besides many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chan- 
cellor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. F. Watkins, and Major R. W. Mill- 
saps. Dr. J. M. Burton, late professor of Romance Languages, 
who died in France in the service of his country on October 
5, 1918, generously left to the College his entire Romance li- 
brary. This has been appropriately labeled and shelved, and 
constitutes a valuable addition to the books on Romance Lan- 
guages. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by Mrs, J. R. 
Bingham, of CarroHton, Mississippi, is used for the purchase 
of books in English literature. Through the generosity of 
Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine collection of books has been built 
up for the use of the Department of Religious Education. 

Mrs. Charles B. Galloway made a notable addition to our I 

collection of valuable books by giving to the College the fine 
theological library of the lamented Bishop Charles B. Galloway. 

The students also have access to the State Library and the 
Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in many 
departments. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 



RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Students will be required to be present at morning worship 
in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty and 
students come together to hear the reading of the Bible and to 
engage in singing and prayer. Students must attend religious 
worship at least once on Sunday in one of the churches of 
Jackson. 

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

One of the most potent factors in the College for develop- 
ing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three- 
fold nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spirit- 
ual. It is a well known fact that a student who develops him- 
self intellectually, but neglects his spiritual nature, is in no 
sense a complete man. Unless one becomes a well-rounded 
man, he is not fit to fight the battles of life. 

In this connection the Association was organized shortly 
after the College was founded. It has done as much to mould 
character and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the 
students as any other department in connection with the College. 
It has been dominated by the double purpose of leading men to 
accept Christ and to form such associations as will guard them 
against the temptations of college life. The Association has done 
much to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the Col- 
lege, to promote Christian character and fellowship and progres- 
sive Christian work. It trains its members for Christian service 
and leads them to devote their lives to the cause of Christ where 
they can accomplish the most for the extension of the Kingdom 
of God. In order to accomplish this purpose the Association 
holds weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings. These services 
are usually conducted by some of the students, but occasionally 
by some member of the Faculty, or by some prominent minister 
or layman. 

Realizing the importance of a young man's choosing his 
life work while in college, a series of addresses on "Life Work" 



40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

has been arranged and prominent men of each profession are 
invited to address the Association from time to time on their re- 
spective professions. 

An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting 
more than a week, which results in leading young men to 
Christ each year. These services last year were conducted by 
Rev, George Stoves, D.D., and resulted in renewing enthusiasm 
and in giving great stimulus to Association work. 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the Southern 
Students' Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. Since the 
ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted to discussing 
Association work and problems, the delegates always return en- 
thusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service. 

The work of the Association is carried on by the students; 
each man has his part to do according to the plan of the organ- 
ization. The President, elected by the members, appoints chair- 
men of nine committees, each composed of three or more men. 
It is the duty of the Publicity Committee to advertise all meet- 
ings, and secure good attendance. The Membership Committee 
meets all new students as they arrive, and gives them any in- 
formation desired concerning College, boarding facilities, etc. 
Afterward this committee calls on each student and urges him 
to become a member of the Association. The Reception Com- 
mittee has charge of College Night, and any other entertain- 
ment that the Association may choose to give during the year. 
The object of College Night is to make the students acquainted 
with one another and to interest the new men in the different 
phases of College life. The Employment Committee assists 
deserving students in getting employment for their spare time. 
The City Mission Committee has charge of work in different 
parts of the city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, 
and the Music Committee, whose Chairman is the Treasurer of 
the Association, collects the annual dues and raises funds suf- 
ficient for meeting current expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission Study 
Committees. Bible study groups are formed at the dormitories 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 41 



and at the boarding houses. The students engage in daily Bible 
reading and meet for one hour each week, for discussion. The 
Mission Study Committee arranges courses in biographies of 
missionaries in various mission fields and secures leaders for 
the various classes. A student Volunteer Band is organized 
and is active in preparation for mission work. Delegates are sent 
each year to the Volunteer Convention, and the College is now 
represented in the foreign field by a number of efficient mis- 
sionaries. 

The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, and 
it is expected that every student will identify himself with the 
organization. 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

The Young Women's Christian Association plays the same 
part in the lives of the young women of the college as is played 
by the Y. M. C. A. in the lives of the men. It exerts a pro- 
found influence for good on the whole college. 

Religious services are held by the Y. W. C. A. each week„ 
a period being set apart in the college programme of exercises 
for that purpose. The Association sends each year a delegate 
to Montreat. The girls of the college have in the Y. W. C. A. 
all the advantages offered by that organization in the best col- 
leges for women. 

The Freshman Commission constitutes those who are in 
training for position as future officers of the Association. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two large halls have been provided for the Literary Socie- 
ties organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, dec- 
lamation, composition, and acquaintance with the methods of 
deliberative bodies. These societies are conducted by the stu- 
dents under constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. 
They are named respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar So- 



42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



cities, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their mem- 
bers. 

Representatives chosen from the societies engage in inter- 
collegiate debate with teams from the other colleges of tho 
state and also other institutions. In recent years there have 
been debates with Emory University, Birmingham Southern 
College, Vanderbilt University, Centenary College, and others. 
In 1925-'26, Millsaps' debate teams won every one of the six 
debates engaged in, and since that time have won 14 out of 17 
debates. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS. 

There are two literary publications which have an excellent 
standing among the student publications of the South, viz., the 
Purple and White, the campus weekly, and the College annual, 
the Bobashela. In 1925, a volume entitled "Millsaps Verse" was 
published by the students and has received high commendation. 

HONORARY FRATERNITIES. 

Student leadership in college activities is signalized and 
rewarded by election to various honorary fraternities. Literary 
ability among the men of the college leads to membership in 
the Kit Kat Chapter of the national literary fraternity, Sigma 
Upsilon. Similar ability among the co-eds leads to membership 
in Chi Delta Phi, a national literary honor society for women. 
Excellence in scholarship is given recognition by election to Eta 
Sigma. Pi Kappa Delta is being petitioned for a charter, so 
that by the session of 1929-'30, the leaders in oratory and de- 
"bate at Millsaps, in all probability, will be privileged to enjoy 
membership in one of the nation's leading debate fraternities. 
There is at present no other chapter of Pi Kappa Delta in the 
state. Student leadership, of whatever kind, is recognized by 
membership in Omici'on Delta Kappa, an intercollegiate leader- 
ship fraternity. Membership in this organization is regarded 
as a great honor. Excellence in dramatics at Millsaps, as 
manifested by participation in the dramas presented by the 
Millsaps Players, leads to association with Alpha Psi Omega, 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43 

the youngest honorary fraternity on the campus and one of 
the livest. Such honors as those mentioned above are much 
sought after in our institution, and cause students to attain a 
high degree of excellence in their chosen fields of student ac- 
tivity. 

MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS. 

For a number of years there have been two excellent glee 
clubs, the men's glee club under the direction of Dr. A. P. Ham- 
ilton, and the women's glee club under the direction of Dr. B. 
E. Mitchell. An excellent band has been organized, the student 
body raising some $1200,00 for instruments and equipment, and 
under the leadership of Mr. J. G. Leonard it has made rapid 
progress. 

Several other voluntary organizations, such as the Science 
Club, give expressions to collateral scholarly interests outside 
the regular curriculum. 

ATHLETICS. 

Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
games. Games and sports of all kinds are under the special 
direction of the General Athletic Association, a student organi- 
zation, whose object is to promote this class of physical exer- 
cise. The faculty exercises a general advisory control en- 
deavoring to foresee and avert dangerous tendencies or excess in 
physical exercises while giving to the students as far as possible, 
entire liberty of management; a strict limit is placed upon the 
character of the intercollegiate games and the number played 
away from the College. 

The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercollegiate 
teams and conducts mass games and interclass leagues that 
enlist a large percentage of the students in some form of active 
participation in athletics. For those who report regularly two 
hours a week for exercise, under the instruction of the Athletic 
Director, a scholastic credit of one session-hour is granted.

BOARDING FACILTTIES. 

Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange for their 
living in one of two ways: 

1. There are eight small cottages, in which students can 
room at reduced cost. These cottages are provided with the 
same furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages 
are admirably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The 
rooms are sufficiently large to accommodate two students each. 
The room rental per student in the cottages is $27.00 per year 
in advance or $15.00 per half year in advance. Lights, fuel, 
and water are furnished except to families using apartments. 
The boys in these cottages may take their meals in the college 
dormitory. Students wishing to engage a room in one of the 
cottages should write Mr. V. B. Hathom, at the college. 

2. In the dormitories the expense will be approximately 
$22.00 to $25.00 per month including room, light, steam heat, 
board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The dining 
room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 1927-1928 
the cost amounted to approximately $17.00 per month. Students 
may room in the cottages and take their meals at the college 
dormitory. There are Christian homes where students may 
get rooms without board. In such cases the students may get 
meals at the college dormitory or at private homes. 

THE DORMITORIES. 

Founder's Hall is a three story structure, beautifully lo- 
cated on the east campus facing State Street. At the south 
end of the campus and overlooking the city with the beautiful 
dome of the New Capitol in the foreground are Burton Hall 
and Galloway Hall. These handsome buildings with their 
columned porticoes are connected by a colonnade. 

The great dining room is unusually fine, and is separated 
from the large kitchens by a commodious serving room. A 
feature which will be greatly appreciated by the students is a 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 



large common room where the boys may gather for a social 
hour. 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any institution in this 
section. Each student should bring with him four sheets for a 
single bed, blankets, or quilts, a pillow with eases, and six 
towels. 

No change of rooms will be allowed except by permission 
of the President. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to be 
assured of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a re- 
quest for a reservation. Students entering college for the first 
time are entitled to reserve a room upon payment of the Regis- 
tration fee of $15.00. 

A home for young women on the College campus under the 
supervision of the Matron and the Dean of Women has been 
provided and newly furnished, and adequate provision will be 
made to accommodate all out of town young women who are ac- 
cepted. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES. 

The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississip- 
pi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of North Mississippi 
Conference, have built two cottages for the accommodation of 
students. These homes are named, respectively, the John A. 
Ellis, and J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

MATRICULATION. 

The various departments are under the direction of profes- 
sors who are responsible for the systems and methods pursued. 

The session begins on the second Wednesday of September 
and continues with recess of about ten days at Christmas and a 
recess of three days at the end of the second term, until the first 



46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Wednesday in June. The first two days of the session are given 
to registration and all students, both old and new, are required 
during that time to place their names up©n the books of the Col- 
lege and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture courses 
begin Friday, and absences will be recorded against any student 
not present from the opening lecture of each course. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments but they are auxil- 
iary to the written examinations, which in conjunction with 
the class standing, as determined by the daily work of the stu- 
dent, are the main tests of the student's proficiency. 

REPORTS. 

Reports are sent at the close of each six weeks to the par- 
ent or guardian of each student. These reports give the num- 
ber of excused and unexcused absences from lectures, and in- 
dicate, as nearly as practicable, the nature of the progress made 
by him in his work at the College. 

HONOR SYSTEM. 

Not the least of the educational influences of the College 
is the honor system. According to this system the student is 
not watched by the members of the Faculty during examina- 
tions, but is required to pledge his honor that he has neither re- 
ceived nor given any aid during the period of examination. If a 
student is accused of cheating, he is given a full and fair trial by 
the Honor Council, which is composed of seven students select- 
ed by the students. Experience has shown that under this sys- 
tem not only has cheating been lessened, but that a spirit of 
honor and truth has been fostered which tends to include not 
only the examination tests, but all relations between student 
and professor. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 



REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS. 

Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the College 
at his office in the main building promptly at 9:00 o'clock on 
the opening day, September 11th. In each instance a certifi- 
cate of good moral character, signed by the proper official of 
the institution attended during the previous session, or by some 
persons of known standing, must be sent to the Registrar at least 
two weeks before the opening of the sesison. Each candidate 
who satisfies these requirements and those for admission by 
certificate or examination will be furnished with a card con- 
taining the courses offered, from which he may select those 
which he proposes to pursue during the session. The card must 
then be carried to the Bursar, who will, after the College fees 
have been paid to him, sign the card. Registration is incom- 
plete unless the registration card is signed by both the Regis- 
trar and the Bursar. On payment of these fees the applicant 
will be admitted to classes. 

DELAYED REGISTRATION. 

Students are not permitted to delay their registration 
through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student, 
new or old, who fails to present himself for registration during 
the first two days of the session will be admitted to registra- 
tion only upon the consent of the President, and will be requir- 
ed to pay a special fee of $3.00. 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE, AND GRADES. 

The Academic year begins on the morning of the second 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas re- 
cess beginning at 4:00 p. m. on the twentieth of December and 
continuing about ten days, and a Spring recess of two days. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the 
session, with the exception of the days above indicated, un- 
less he has received permission to be temporarily absent, or to 



48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



withdraw before its close. Leave of absence is granted by the 
Faculty or President for sufficient reasons, and must in every 
case be obtained in advance. While in residence each student 
is required to attend regularly all lectures and other prescribed 
exercises and all examinations in the courses which he pursues, 
(unless excused for cause), and in every way to conform to the 
regulations of the College. 

Absence from the College is permitted only upon the leave 
of the President .obtained in every case in advance. But leave 
of absence for purposes of accompanying the athletic teams, 
debating teams and all other recognized clubs will not be grant- 
ed except to officers and members of the organizations. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organizations 
is provided for by Faculty regulations. 

Absence from any class is not excused except for sickness 
or like providential cause. But absences, whether excused or 
not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation periods in any 
term will result in proportionate decrease of credits allowed. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except for 
sickness on day of examination, attested by a physician's cer- 
tificate, or other cause which the Faculty by special order may 
approve. An unexcused absence or presentation of an un- 
pledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examination 
in which it occurs. A student whose absence from examina- 
tion is excused is admitted to the special examination ordered 
by the Faculty. 

Change of Classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the Faculty. 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a term or 
for the session is determined by the combined class standing and 
the result of examination. If the combined grade is below 60 
the student is required to repeat the course. If it is 60 or above 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

it may be averaged with the grades for the other terms for a 
passing grade of 70. 

Those delinquent in two or more subjects are required to 
report to study hall from 7:30 to 9:30 in the evening of the 
following two weeks. 

Class standing in any course is determined by the regular- 
ity of attendance of the student upon lectures and laboratory 
or other similar exercises where included in the course in 
question and by the faithful performance of his work as indi- 
cated by the answers when questioned, by written exercises, 
note books, the faithful performance of laboratory or other 
similar work, etc. Students are regarded by the faculty as 
under the law of honor in matters affecting class standing or 
in examinations. The grade for passing in any course is 70 
per cent. For quality requirements see page 64. 

Withdrawals. 

Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the writ- 
ten consent of the Faculty or President. 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the Faculty for habitual 
delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any other fault which 
prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which he 
should have come to the College. 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the Honor Council upon 
conviction of cheating on examination. The penalty is either 
suspension or expulsion. 

The College reserves the right to cancel the registration of 
any student at any time. In such a case, the prorata portion 
of board, room rent, and tuition will be returned. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



CONDUCT. 

The rules of the College require from every student de- 
corous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a mem- 
ber of the College, whether he be within its precincts or not. 

They require from the student regular and diligent appli- 
cation to his studies, and regular attendance upon chapel and 
Sunday services at one of the churches. 

Drunkenness, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly for- 
bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by 
suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly for- 
bidden. 

Visiting the City at Night. 

Students who are delinquent in their studies are forbid- 
den to visit the town, or other place away from the College at 
night, without permission from the President. 

Delinquency. 

Reports are made each two weeks of all those failing dur- 
ing the preceding two weeks in each subject. The names of 
those delinquent are posted and notice is sent to the parent or 
guardian. 

Those students who do not pass in as many as three sub- 
jects during any term, except Freshmen, who must pass two 
subjects and make 60 in a third for the first and second terms 
shall be dismissed from College. 

Demerit System. 

1. The demerit system is used. Demerits are incurred by un- 
excused absence from class, chapel, and church, and for 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 



other violations of the college regulations, such as hazing 
and other offences. 

2. When a student has received an aggregate of thirty-five 
demerits, he is called before the Faculty and warned. A 

notice of the same will be sent to his parent or guardian. 

3. When the aggregate of demerits reaches sixty-five, he re- 
ceives a second warning, and a second notice is sent to his 
parent or guardian. 

4. When the aggregate of demerits reaches one hundred, he 
is dismissed from the College. 

EXPENSES. 

Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check 
to Mr. V. B. Hathorn, Bursar, and specifying what the enclos 
ure is intended to cover. 

FEES, TUITION, AND BOARD. 

FEES. 

No student will be admitted into any department of the 
College except upon presentation to the professor of the de- 
partment of the Bursar's receipt for all entrance and tuition 
fees. In no case are entrance or laboratory fees returned. 

TUITION. 

Tuition fees will be charged by the year or half-year and 
must be paid not later than the second week of each period. 
No tuition fee will be returned unless a student is disqualified 
for work by severe illness for more than two months. 

BOARD. 

Board is payable by terms of 6 weeks (45 days) strict- 
ly in advance. When a student has paid his board a meal tick- 
et will be issued to him by the Bursar which will be good until 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

the next payment falls due. Payments for board will not 
be returned except for absence of not less than two weeks. 
Charges for board do not include the Christmas holidays, dur- 
ing which period meals will not be served in the dining hall. 

Students will not be admitted to the dining hall without 
meal tickets after classes begin. 

No student shall be allowed to graduate unless he shall have 
settled with the Treasurer all his indebtedness to the College 
by May 1st preceding the commencement. 

Students who have already been matriculated as members 
of the College will present themselves not later than the second 
day of the session and conform, as regards the registration in 
their respective classes and payment of dues, to the require- 
ments stated in the preceding paragraph. 

For a complete statement of fees and expenses see next 
page. 

Each student should bring with him four sheets for a single 
bed, blankets, or quilt, a pillow with cases, and six towels. 

Free Tuition. 

Children of itinerant preachers of the Methodist Episco- 
pal Church, South, or of superannuated or active ministers of 
any Christian denomination, and young men preparing for th-^ 
ministry may receive tuition free in the academic department, 
but are expected to pay all other fees. Any student, wish- 
ing exemption from the payment of the tuition fee upon this 
ground, will be required to present a certificate from the Quar- 
terly Conference or some other ecclesiastical body showing that 
he is recognized by his Church as a student preparing for the 
ministry.

The Academic Schools comprise the Departments of Lan- 
guages, Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, Litera- 
ture, Philosophy, Education, and Religious Education. In the 
undergraduate courses of these departments is comprised the 
work of the College with the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and 
Bachelor of Science; in the graduate courses is comprised the 
work of Graduate Studies with the degrees of Master of Arts 
and Master of Science. 

B. A. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Arts Course offers special instruction in 
the department of Latin and Greek. 

B. S. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Science Course offers special work in Chem- 
istry, Biology, Physics and Mathematics. 

M. A. and M. S. Degrees. 

The degrees of M.A., and M.S., may be conferred upon 
graduates who hold the B.A. or B.S. degree from Millsaps Col- 
lege, or from some other institution of equal rank. For the at- 
tainment of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps Col- 
lege is required after the attainment of the Bachelor's degree, 
and also satisfactory completion of advanced work to the amount 
of fifteen hours. This work must be taken in not more than 
three different subjects; a major subject, in which a minimum 
of six hours credit must be earned; and one or two minor sub- 
jects to the amount of six hours credit. 

All the work of the major subject must be of an advanced 
character, to which undergraduates are not admitted. The minor 
subject or subjects may be pursued in senior college courses. 
No grade less than 80% shall be credited towards the require- 
ments for the Master's degree in any subject. In addition to 
the twelve hours required as above stated, a thesis dealing with 
some phase of the major subject must be submitted by the 
candidate six weeks before his graduation, and approved by a 



64 ' MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



committee of the Faculty. In time requirements, this shall be 
considered equivalent to three hours work. 

A full outline of the required and the elective studies of- 
fered for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of 
Science is given in the pages following this announcement. 

Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduation both for 
the B.A. and B.S. degrees. Specific courses are prescribed in 
the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, including alternative 
courses offered in ancient and modern languages. Courses in 
the Junior and Senior classes almost entirely elective. 

The normal course is 16 hours for each year. Not fewer 
than 12 hours nor more than 19 hours may be taken in a year, 
unless by express permission of the President and Faculty. 

A student who makes a grade of 70% in a subject will be 
advanced in that subject, but a certain number of quality points 
is requisite for advancement from one class to the next higher 
class. The student must have three quality points to be classed 
as a Sophomore, 11 to be classed as a Junior, 21 to be classed 
as a Senior, and 32 for graduation. The completion of any col- 
lege course with a grade of 80% for the year shall entitle a 
student to one quality point for each year-hour, and the com- 
pletion of a course with a grade of 90% for the year shall en- 
title a student to two quality points for each year-hour. 

HONORS. 

A student who has earned 80 quality points during his 
course shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 
128 quality points shall be graduated with "high honors."

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 71 

I. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON, 

PROFESSOR KEY, 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HUDDLESTON 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR SIMPSON. 

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected 
languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in the 
following ways: 

Constant drill in the processes of correlation, comparison, 
discriminaton and classification of the phenomena of language 
is required, both in the study of inflection and syntax and in 
translation. This drill affords a most rigorous exercise in cor- 
rect scientific method and produces habits and reflexes of ac- 
curacy, efficiency and system. 

A first hand acquaintance with the language and modes of 
expression of the ancients and with the evolution of literary 
forms lays open a field of knowledge that is essential to a full 
understanding of modern life and literature. 

Intimate contact with the very words which express the 
best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits whose influ- 
ence has been most abiding and formative in our world should 
shape the character to fine and worthy purposes. 

LATIN.

try required of candidates for both the B.A. and the B. S. de- 
grees, besides other courses open to all Juniors and Seniors. 

The subjects are taught by recitations and lectures and 
work which each student must perform in the laboratory. The 
laboratories are kept well equipped with apparatus necessary 
to the correct appreciation of the science. Each student has 
his own desk and apparatus, and is closely supervised, so that 
he may not only gain a true idea of the substance under in- 
spection but also train his hands to be careful to the smallest 
detail, and the eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, and 
habits of neatness, skill and economy. Each student will be 
expected to keep accurate notes. In all courses attention will 
be given to chemical calculations, and the use of reference 
books and periodicals will be encouraged.

IV. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY. 

PROFESSOR HOOKER, 

MRS. CALHOUN, 

MISS HOLLOWAY, 

MR. KURTS. 

The aim of the Department of Education and Psychology is 
to train teachers, principals, superintendents, and supervisors 
for the profession of teaching in the schools of Mississippi. 
The courses offered are approved by the State Board of Exam- 
aminers of Mississippi and are especially adapted to conditions 
and needs of Mississippi, although applicable in any state. 

Candidates for the Bachelor's degree who present nine 
hours of work, including courses 1, 2 or 5 (b), 12, 13, 15, and 
16, will be given, in addition to their B.A. or B.S. degree, a 
certificate which will entitle them to a professional license from 
the State. 

Students who have completed the college work required to 
give them junior standing in the college, including courses 1, 
2, or 5 (b), and 12, 13, will be granted a Sophomore state li- 
cense which is valid for two years. 

All majors in this department must take courses 1, 2, or 5 
(b), 12, 13, 15, and 16. 

Students who expect to teach should be very careful in the 
selection of courses. School administrators are no longer satis- 
fied with the mere offering of a college degree. The degree 
must include principles of education, the best methods of teach- 
ing, and practical applications of the principles and methods of 
teaching. The courses best designed to meet these require- 
ments are 1, 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 15, and 16. 

Courses in education and psychology are not open to 
Freshmen.

COLLEGE EXTENSION. 

PROFESSOR HOOKER, Director. 

It is the purpose of the Extension Department as far as 
possible to make the resources of the college available for people 
in their homes. Many who aspire to self-culture have not 
the means or the inclination to come to college for it. To 
such the Extension Department holds out a helping hand. 

The college has a valuable equipment of books, buildings, 
and trained instructors. It is the privilege of the people to call 
for such service as the college can render; it is the duty and 
privilege of the college to devise ways and means for placing its 
service at the disposal of the people. 

r AID TO METHODIST MINISTERS. 

Library Extension Service. — One of the most effective ways 
in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is in plac- 
ing the books of our library subject to their calL We not only 
do this free of charge but we pay postage one way on any 
book that may be ordered from us. Books may be kept out 
for the period of one month.

occupied by this department. The Museum contains about 300 
minerals collected from various parts of the world, 200 speci- 
mens of rock presented by the United States Geological Sur- 
vey, a fine cabinet of 300 minerals and rocks presented by 
Goucher College, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and 
fossils, all thoroughly indexed. The excellence of the latter 
is yearly increased by donations from friends of the College, 
and a collection made by the professor and class on annual 
trips. 

1. a. Lithologic and Physiographic Geology. 

This includes a study of mineral crystalline forms, chem- 
ical composition, occurrence, and uses, with a description of 
the kind and arrangement of rock masses. Folios and to- 
pographical sheets of the U. S. Geological Survey will be 
used in connection with a study of physiographic features 
and processes. First term. 

b. Dynamic Geology. 

The portion of the courses embraces the study of the me- 
chanical and chemical effects of the atmosphere, water, 
heat, and life. Special attention will be given to some 
phases of the subject, as the work of glaciers, and of vol- 
canoes. Second term.

class a practical conception of this kind of surveying. The 
College is fortunate in being located in the midst of a region 
that is quite varied in geological character. Occasionally the 
faculty grants a week's leave of absence on trips to more dis- 
tant parts. In the last month of the course special attention 
will be given to Geology of Mississippi.

VIL THE DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN. 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON. 

The regular work in German begins with Course 1, but for 
the benefit of those students who have not been able to make 
the required preparation in this subject, a preparatory course 
(Course A) is offered. This course, if taken under the super- 
vision of the College and not used as an entrance unit, may be 
used as Junior or Senior elective. When thus used it counts 
three hours toward graduation. All classes in German meet 
three times a week, unless otherwise specified. For entrance 
Course I will count as two units, provided the student makes a 
grade of not less than 80. 

For graduation, college work in German, French, or Span- 
ish may be substituted for Greek in the B.A. course. In the 
B.S. course, modern languages may be substituted for Latiin, 
classes in the three languages offered being interchangeable, 
hour for hour. But a student should consult the professors in 
charge before so planning his course as to include more than 
two modern languages. Any course not otherwise counted may 
be used as an elective.

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR MOORE, 

INSTRUCTOR MRS. SPIVA, 

MISS GAINEY, 

MR. BETTERSWORTH, 

In the courses in History two things will be kept in view 
Students will be required to acquaint themselves with the sig- 
nificant facts in the development of the nations studied, and 
to learn why these facts are considered significant. As far as 
possible, the causal connection between historical events will be 
indicated, and emphasis will be laid on the idea that history is 
a record of the continuous development of the human race, 
whose growing self-consciousness manifests itself in the pro- 
gressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals into 
laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its racial composition, its 
religious and social institutions, its economic condition, and the 
organization of its government.

of their history, and of the effect upon them of their interna- 
tional relation. This will be done as a preparation for the 
study of the governmental institutions of our own and other 
countries, and as the basis for a correct understanding of the 
questions now engaging civilized nations.

DEPARTMENT OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. 

(W. S. F. Tatum Foundation) 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR NESBITT. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR BLACKWELL. 

MISS MOORE. 

MR. BISHOP. 

The courses offered in this Department endeavor to embody 
the principles of religion and the ideals of Methodism while 
seeking to provide a proper curriculum of Religious Education in 
a Church College. 

The aim is to train avocational workers in the field of re- 
ligious activity as well as to provide some adequate training for 
vocational workers. The modem program of the Church is al- 
ready making heavy demands upon the laity, especially for train- 
ed service. And for this reason we emphasize the fact that 
these courses are available and valuable for ministerial and 
non-ministerial students alike. 

Upon completion of twelve hours work in this Department, 
the College, in co-operation with the General Sunday School 
Board of the Church, through its Department of Teacher Train- 
ing, will award a Certificate in Religious Education. Of the 
courses listed below, Bible 1 (a) (b) (c), and Religious Educa- 
tion 1 (a) (b), 2 (a) (b) 3 (a) (b), and 4 (b), count as ten 
hours of required work. The remaining two hours may be 
elected from other Bible or Religious Education courses. 

Millsaps students who are qualified are much in demand in 
the summer for Cokesbury Training School work. The Depart- 
ment seeks to co-operate with the Church in this field and of- 
fers credit for three of the four required units for Cokesbury 
workers. Courses 1 (b), 2 (a) (b), and 3 (a) are the required 
courses offered. 



112 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



For purposes of convenience the work offered in Bible is 
listed under a separate head from the Religious Education 
courses. In the Bible courses, the Bible itself is the principle 
text-book used but other supplementary texts are also used. 

Special attention is called to these facts: (1) The courses 
in Religious Education are not open to Freshmen, and only Religi- 
ous Education 1 is open to Sophomores who may wish to elect 
it. (2) Most second and third term courses should only be 
taken in sequence after the preceding courses, and the pre-re- 
quisites for various courses must be observed.

XIV. THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCE. 

PROFESSOR LIN. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR BLACKWELL. 

The aim of this department will be rather to do well a 
small amount of work than to cover a large field. Courses in 
Economics, Political Science, and Sociology will be offered. 
While these are elementary in their scope and nature, they will 
serve as a sound basis for further study in these subjects, 
and will be useful to those who seek to understand and im« 
prove our financial, political and social life and institutions. 

ECONOMICS. 

3. a. A comprehensive survey of the field is undertaken, 
dwelling particularly upon the laws governing the pro- 
duction and consumption of wealth, business organiza- 
tion, wages and labor, rent, interest, etc. Recitations, 
readings, and discussions. Two hours, first term. 

b. A continuation of work of the preceding term. Two 
hours a week. 

c. A continuation of the preceding course. Two hours a 
week. 

Professor Lin. 

SOCIOLOGY. 

This course is designed to introduce the student to the prob- 
lems, processes, and principles of human association. 

Ross' "Principles of Sociology," lectures, parallel reading, 
reports. Three hours, through the year. 

(Not offered in 1929-1930.) 

Associate Professor Blackwell. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 123

GENERAL STATEMENT. 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 1929 will open 
on June 11th and will continue for elevent weeks. 

The Summer School is planned especially for college stu- 
dents and for teachers who desire further professional work or 
regular college work. Teachers may secure renewal of license 
by attendance for six weeks. Entrance units and transcripts 
will be required of all new students. 

In opening its doors to the teachers of the State, Millsaps 
College feels that it is serving a long felt need in that some 
provision should be made at the Capital of the State for teach- 
ers to spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the same 
time take such work as they may find in the list of courses. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be 
afforded in the way of renewal and extension of license provided 
by the State Department of Education. 

College graduates who lack the required number of hours 
in Education will find, here, an opportunity to make up some 
of those hours. Students with two years of college training 



128 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



may, with six hours of Education, be granted a temporary State 
License without examination by the State Board of Examiners. 

The amount of work that a student may take will be limit- 
ed to two subjects with a total credit of six hours. 

There will be a series of lectures by special lecturers from 
time to time. Announcement will be made beforehand. 

The tuition fee will be $35.00 and a matriculation fee of 
$5.00 will be charged. Board will be $25.00 or $26.00 per month, 
or at the rate of $8.00 per week. For a period of less than a 
week the rate will be $1.50 per day. Science fee, $10.00. Li- 
brary fee, $2.00. Science breakage fee, $2.00 for each course, 
unused portion returned. Those who expect to live on the cam- 
pus will bring with them a pillow, bed-linen, towels, and toilet 
articles. The dormitories and dining hall will be open on the 
evening of June 10th. Fees and board payable strictly in ad- 
vance. 

Those expecting to enter the Summer School should make 
reservation by sending to the Director a deposit of $5.00. 

The following courses will be offered: 

Chemistry 1 French 2 Latin 2 

English 2 Mathematics 2 Bible 1 

French A Latin 1 Religious Edu. 1 

Spanish 1 or 2 Latin A Economics and Civics 

Mathematics 1 Physics 1 History 2 

Ethics French 1 

Education 2, 5b, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 17, and 18.

130 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Whitworth College, located in the beautiful little city of 
Brookhaven, has a long and honorable history in the education 
of Mississippi women. Traditions of piety, learning, and 
culture of more than a half century enshrine the campus and 
historic community. The college may be reached by the Illi- 
nois Central, the Mississippi Central and the Brookhaven and 
Pearl River Railroads. Situated in the most elevated region of 
southern Mississippi (489.5 feet above sea level) the commun- 
ity has an enviable record for health, while at the same time the 
mild southern climate renders out door exercise possible and en- 
joyable at all seasons. The college occupies a beautiful camp- 
us where nine buildings, six of them built of the famous Brook- 
haven brick, constitute the most complete physical plant of any 
woman's college in the State. 

With this admirable physical setting, the college is now ex- 
cellently equipped in plant, faculty, and academic organization 
for thorough work. In accordance with the action taken by 
the Mississippi Conference on the fourteenth day of November, 
1927, the physical plant and all the resources of the college 
have been taken over by the Board of Trustees of Millsaps Col- 
lege and Whitworth College is now being operated as a coordi- 
nate Junior College Division of the Millsaps Collegiate system. 
At its last annual session the Association of Colleges and Sec- 
ondary Schools of the Southern States admitted Whitworth 
College to full membership. The college is also a member of 
the Southern Association of Colleges for Women and of the 
American Association of Junior Colleges. The courses of 
study for the Freshman and Sophomore years are the same as 
those offered in the Freshman and Sophomore years of Millsaps 
College as indicated on page 64 of this catalogue. A max- 
imum of three year hours in home economics and three year 
hours in fine arts may, however, be counted towards the bach- 
elor's degree. Other courses, not leading to the B.A. or B.S. 
degree, are offered in home economics, in fine arts and in edu- 
cation. Those completing these courses will be awarded a 
certificate of graduation. Young women, who are not grad- 
uates of the Jackson High School, who wish to work towards 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 131 



the Millsaps B.A. or B.S. degree will be enrolled in Whitworth 
College for the first two years of the course. 

CLASSIFICATION. 

Students will be classed and given membership in two Col- 
lege classes under the following conditions: 

Freshmen must have at least fifteen entrance units to their 
credit and carry work equivalent to fifteen hours. For sopho- 
more classification the attainment of one of the Whitworth Col- 
lege Diplomas at the end of the school year must be possible, 
and the student's schedule must be arranged accordingly.
